Climate change activist Greta Thunberg’s stare a Donald Trump as he entered the UN has become a social media meme.
The Swedish eco-warrior addressed the United Nations Climate Summit in New York on Monday telling delegates ‘you have stolen my dreams and my childhood’.
The schoolgirl was seen at the UN headquarters yesterday morning with an enraged expression on her face as President Trump upstaged her entrance by walking in flanked by news reporters.
She could be seen fiercely staring at the US president as he walked by and into the UN General Assembly.
Social media instantly exploded with memes featuring the 16-year-old’s ‘death stare’ at the most powerful person in the world.

The 16-year-old’s ‘death stare’ at the US president promoted a host of social media memes
Some joked the glare evoked one you would give your ‘worst enemy’ and that she was staring into his ‘dark cavernous soul’.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee retweeted a post that read: ‘We are all Greta Thunberg.’
A meme suggested thought bubble from Thunberg might say: ‘I would roast you but I’m an environmentalist so I’m opposed to burning trash.’
One post compared Thunberg’s hatred of Trump with the reaction those who prefer pineapple to pizza sometimes receive.
Another depicted Trump as the dinosaurs and Thunberg as an asteroid as she glared at the president.
In one meme, Thunberg’s attempts to be heard by Trump were said to be similar to the obsessive fan in Eminem’s hit Stan.

During the immediate aftermath of her speech, far-right filmmaker and political commentator, Dinesh D’Souza, shared a photo of Thunberg next to a Nazi poster of an Aryan poster girl used in Third Reich propaganda.
One social Twitter user said: ‘Find yourself someone who looks upon your worst enemy the way Greta Thunberg looks at Trump.’
The UN summit this week was convened for nations around the world to confront global warming and rising fossil fuel emissions.
On Saturday the Swedish teenager joined 700 other youth leaders at the United Nations’ Youth Climate Summit to demand radical moves to fight climate change.
Last month the activist said the president ‘obviously’ doesn’t listen to science when assessing his stance on global warming.
Thunberg made international headlines last week as she inspired millions of people across 150 countries to take to the streets for the Global Strike 4 Climate on Friday.
Before the strike, the 16-year-old Swede addressed Congress and criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Change Agreement early in his tenure.
Thunberg made her own strong stand against climate change in 2018 when she skipped school to stage a one-person demonstration outside Sweden’s parliament in Stockholm.
Her protest ignited a nationwide movement in Sweden thanks to social media and earned Thunberg a Nobel Prize nomination.
